2-hour session, six wines
These sessions are one of the more entertaining and informative classes. The class starts with everyone being separated into groups of four, sitting down with the winemaker and being taken through six single variety red wines; exploring the aroma, structure and palate-feel of each.
Each group is then given measuring cylinders and half an hour to come up with their favourite blend, for example, mixing 50% shiraz, 30% merlot, 10% petit verdot and 10% tempranillo. These ‘favourite blends’ are then collated and poured to the groups, so they can be blind-tasted and judged by everyone involved – with an ultimate winner appointed on the day. Shared platters of our NSW charcuterie / cheese boards to share down the table throughout your session and a bottle of our A.Retief wine per person to take home!
